Something a little different…..


When I started this blog, my main aim was to document film and film cameras only, nothing else.

Well, nothing is written in stone in this life (ok, aside of maybe the stuff Moses found written on a rock..), so over time, I have had to bend a little in order to widen the interest-capture ability of the blog…now included are cellphone and digital cameras as well.

Today, while sitting at another of my favourite coffee places in Vancouver, the Smile Diner at 424 W Pender St, I got talking with a guy who also happened to be a photographer, using only medium format.

He told me about a calendar that came out a while ago, not with normal photos we see on calendars, but x-rays….not only that, the x-rays are of (possibly) a naked lady wearing just high heel shoes!

Well, that fired me up straight away…I make no secrets of the fact that high heels, especially bright red stilettos on a lady, drive me kinda crazy…come on, what do you expect, I’m a hot-blooded male for heavens sake….;)  Apologies to my lady readers, of course!

Anyway, I tracked the work down and here it is for you to look at. And sure, this blog deals with film, doesn’t it, and as far as I know, x-rays are still taken on film, so the subject fits in with the strictures of the blog.

Not too sure about the subject of the red high heels, though…..!

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 years...my first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money back...no arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!
